Google Inc.: I salute you!

Google Inc. turns 10 years today and I think a part of all of us should celebrate with them.

As almost everyone knows, this internet giant was started by two Standford University students with little more than a couple of CPUs and a desire to create something better. The secret to their success is also just as well known: amazing working conditions for their staff, a motto to "do no evil", they think big, and never settle for the status quo. They never stand still. (Yesterday's Globe and Mail had a great story on Google's contributions with a cool timeline of the company.)

Hats off to Google Inc.! Thank you for keep blogger, gmail, google analytics, and the new and improved search engine free. Free! Amazing!
